Lots of users use own charsets and collations on MySQL server 5.1.

They use it because MySQL server either don't provide the collation/charset of their language or they run into upgrading problems on specific charsets that are incompatible between server 5.0 and 5.1.

In Workbench on reverse engineering the own charset will get recognised. Also if the new charset/collation is set as default charset/collation Workbench is able to handle this and is taking this for new tables.

But you can't create a schema with self made charset as default charset.

How to repeat:
See above

Suggested fix:
I think this is not easy to fix.
